Title: Postdoctoral Researcher

Location: Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine

Description:

The NIH-funded Cancer Target Discovery and Development (CTD2) Center at Johns Hopkins University, led by Prof. Andrew J. Ewald and Prof. Joel S. Bader, seeks postdoctoral candidates to fill multiple positions in cancer systems biology. Our Center's mission is to apply quantitative experimental and computational methods using organotypic cell culture to dissect the molecular mechanisms of cancer metastasis. Our goal is to identify and validate targets for processes including tumor invasion, dissemination, and metastatic outgrowth, as exemplified by our previous work (PMIDs 22689777, 24332913, 24590176, 26831077). Exceptional candidates who share our vision of developing new classes of therapeutic targets will be considered across the spectrum from primarily experimental to primarily computational or theoretical training.

Requirements:

A Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. demonstrating creative and independent research relevant to cancer systems biology. Experimental researchers must have experience with generation and analysis of quantitative data whether from genomics, imaging, or other modalities. Computational or theoretical researchers must show the ability to develop and apply new methods, rather than exclusive use of existing software, and must have a deep understanding of biological systems. Experimental areas of particular interest include organotypic cell culture, genomics, genetic screens, and genetically engineered mouse models. Computational areas include population genetics, quantitative imaging, genomic data analysis, and network biology.

We support the Johns Hopkins Roadmap on Diversity and Inclusion and aim to hire the best candidates regardless of race, color, ethnicity, sex, gender, gender identity or expression, marital status, religion, sexual orientation, age, disability, veteran status, socioeconomic status, or political viewpoint.

How to apply:

Send by email to ctdsquared@jhu.edu, with subject line "CTD2 computational postdoc application" or "CTD2 experimental postdoc application", a single PDF including a cover letter describing your vision for contributing to this Center, NIH-style biosketch, and names, email addresses, and phone numbers for 3 references for immediate contact.  All applications received by Friday, September 22, 2017, will receive full consideration.
